KnightOS [github] is a third-party Operating System for Texas Instruments z80 calculators. It offers many features over the stock OS, including multitasking and a tree-based filesystem, delivered in a Unix-like environment. KnightOS is written entirely in z80 assembly, with a purpose-built toolchain. Additionally, the KnightOS kernel is standalone, and you can use it as the basis for your own powerful operating systems.

Alternative for this alternative: GlassOS.

Hail the mighty Zilog!
Kidding aside, this is immensely cool.

I wonder if you could port this to any of the Z80-based home computers, given a larger supply of spare time than I have?

It would be rather nifty to run KnightOS on a Brasov CoBra.
